    I saw this in Serbia last year and don't have the feintest clue of what it is. I've sent the picture off to the Royal Armoury in Leeds (the biggest armoury in the UK) and they don't know either....

    Just a SWAG..... some type of flare pistol?

    I remember seeing a "starter pistol" years ago that looked a little similar. It was made to look like a .25 auto pistol (Rohm?) but the "magazine" was a small rectangular block that was inserted lengthwise into the guns frame below the barrel. It was drilled to hold 6 .22 cal blank shorts and would ratchet through the frame after each shot, and come out the other end when all the rounds were fired. The blanks faced upward toward the barrel and I assume fired through a port in the bottom of the barrel.

    Perhaps this is a sort of adaptation to fire (4) flares in the rack on top of this frame? I dunno...... :eek:

    Good question!

    flare gun is the closest we came up with, but the barrels are just so short.

    it does look like it fires one barrel, then the slide moves one barrel across to fire the next whatever

    Somewhere, I have one of these. They also fire tear gas rounds.

    LOL! Yes. Although I can't imagine how much gas you are going to get out of a .22 short casing...... :p

    The little blank pistol was my noise maker on new years eve when I was a kid. It was the only time dad ever brought it out. :rolleyes:
